PEANUTS™ The Great Pumpkin Patch Express arrives at St. Louis Union Station for 2015! The excursions, which are themed after Charles M. Schulz’s classic story “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown,” depart from from historic Union Station’s train tracks. Guests will experience great views of St. Louis including Busch Stadium, the Gateway Arch and the Mississippi River. Riders will listen to themed music and hear the narration of Schulz’s story by one of the PEANUTS™ crew members as the train travels along the rails.
Prior to the train adventure, passengers will be greeted by PEANUTS™ characters and have a photo opportunity with Lucy and Snoopy at the St. Louis Union Station Pumpkin Patch. Kids can pick, decorate and bring home the perfect pumpkin, enjoy cider and sugar cookies, write a letter to the Great Pumpkin, and take part in festive, family-oriented activities. Kids (and parents) are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes to the event.
The entire train ride experience is approximately 1/2 hour in length. Each ticket entitles guests to one ride aboard the PEANUTS™ The Great Pumpkin Patch Express and access to the Station Pumpkin Patch. All trains depart from St. Louis Union Station, and run round trip. Three classes of train tickets are available; Coach, VIP and Premium. The Premium tickets include upgraded train car seating and a special visit from a Peanuts™ character for the ultimate experience.
